^ Do you really expect corporations to code their software to work with Linux, representing a whopping under 2% of computer users?
Anyways, if sigma would have had this accessory years ago it would have saved their brand an awful lot of hurt over bad AF!
Well, yes. They could easily have used a cross platform library for writing the application and then it would have worked everywhere. I am tired of companies offering software for Windows and Mac OS alone. It smacks of laziness.
it smacks of good business sense, you don't waste money and stay in business.
I think what JohnnyWashngo is trying to say is, it likely could have been done in a fully cross-platform for little to no additional cost (money/personal/etc). Not sure if he's completely correct or not, but it very well may be correct since the only cross-platform stuff I've developed has been Java, and that has it's own quirks and issues.
If the cost had actually be very minimal, it might very well have been nice to release it. However, I'm sure some enterprising person will sniff the USB packets and reverse engineer the protocol. Then all of us linux geeks (well, ok, I use Windows for Lightroom. I'm sorry
) can put together our own application as we will.
